CapAm starts in June

12.28.2009

I’m growing increasingly puzzled about the lack of any info about the CAPTAIN AMERICA movie, allegedly slated to come out just after THOR in 2011. THOR has everyone down to Valhalla’s gardeners cast at this point, whereas CAPTAIN doesn’t even have the title role filled. Or even really RUMORS of having the title role filled.

But one tiny morsel of information came loose during director Joe Johnston’s interview with Fangoria.

"… recalls Johnston, speaking from the art department of The First Avenger: Captain America, which he's readying for a June start."

Hooray! A start date! For reference, THOR starts shooting in January, but as I said, it’s got a full script and cast where CAPTAIN AMERICA is presumably still working up a list of all the blonde actors in Hollywood. Hopefully we’ll start hearing more about this soon, otherwise I feel like we’re definitely going to see the project being pushed back.

Extra Tidbit: I’m curious to see how they’re going to choreograph shield-centric fight scenes.

Seeing as they will be casting a younger actor for the role, this is cap amaericas origin and he was in his early twenties when he was transformed into the super soilder, my pick is Chris Pine! I might sound like a broken record but Pine would do an amazing job as Cap.

My pick for Captain..

is either Matt Damon or Jensen Ackles. My "other" picks would be Thomas Jane, Bradley Cooper, Matthew Fox, Brad Pitt, or Mark Wahlberg.

When you think about it, didn't we start getting casting news for Thor this summer, about 6 months before the start date? It would make sense that we'll start getting some casting news within the next month or so, for sure.

Last time people, Matt Damon: too short, too old.
Alexander Skarsgård: too skinny, by 60lbs.
You all: too stupid and repetitive.

Well I think the Perfect Captain America would be that of Matt Damon. As someone else mentioned its a big deal to step into the shoes of Americas Homeboy. They could tottaly use CGI to make him look weak and frail and as it was proved in Invictus bulk the shit outta him once he gets the Super Soldier Syrum. Also as mentioned before setting it in WW2 is the way to go. Though the other major Dilema after casting Cap Am. would be who would be cast as Red Skull.. I'm thinking its gotta be someone

I'm thinking its gotta be someone with a skiny face such as W. Dafoe but he could not be cast cause well hes the Green Goblin so its gotta be someone else just don't no who... ?

Alexander Skarsgård has the right look.. Nathan Fillion would be cool but probably too old.. And they´re not Americans..

They're Waiting

To see if there will be a sixth season of Supernatural so they can cast Ackles! No, I'm just talking out my A hole! Or should I say my Capt. A hole.

Sam Worthington as Capt.

The casting of Captain America is as big as the casting of Spider-man, Batman or Harry Potter, it's a big deal and the lucky guy who gets to play him in a film will have big shoes to fill so I think that they're being very careful to choose the actor that will play the Capt.

My pic for the part is up top^ I think he would do an awsome job and I hope he gets it, if not, it better be a dang good actor who is able to pull it off.

You can get super creative with the shield fighting- first start researching ancient cultures and their use of shields. The limits that you think a shield as a weapon may give you should be explored, then flip those limits on their head and make them benefits.

Both of those guys are too short and too small to play Captain America. He's 6'2", 240. Matt Damon is 5'11".
Jenson Ackles is tall enough but he's too skinny. Thats like those guys who called for skarsgard to play him but while Skarsgard is 6'3", he's 180 and thats just been pole at that height.

"Do you think A on my forehead stands for Europe?????"

France not Europe. I only correct you because Cap doesn't mind Europe but hates the French in that series. I completely agree though would be a badass line although I doubt they'll put it in because it will push away other countries.

Finally!

I hope this is true and it's not Johnston just talking out of his butt.

And I don't see it being as particularly "polarizing" as the gentleman below seems to think. I can easily see Marvel straddling an intelligent and well-balanced line between national pride and criticism. After all, if you read some of the better comics, a lot of that material is already in the writing.

I hope this starts rollin' in the coming months

My appreciation, sir, for being perhaps the only person who ever has or ever will refer to me as a gentleman.

This will likely be the most polarizing film of its time.

Liberals will say its imperialistic and conservatives will bemoan the lack of ra-ra jingoism.

I'm just curious how they're going to pull off an ass-kicking blond nationalist without making him look like the Hitler Youth.

Thumbs down for this post? Really? Based on what?
